We have an amazing week planned for you with plenty of the magical goodness of Costa Rica. The schedule will include meditation, yoga, pilates, surfing, ayurveda & dharma talks, goody bags, off-site adventures like surfing, paddleboarding, jungle & nature hikes, ziplining, snorkeling and more. There will also be lots of time to explore, rest, swim, surf, hammock-nap & frolic. We've also included a luxurious massage beach side for you this year which you can book upon arrival!
Buffet style breakfast in the covered open air dining room and sunset dinner beach side. Each meal includes lots of fresh fruit and vegetables, local cuisine and internationally inspired with both Meat and Vegetarian options - GF & dairy free on request. Each of these meals includes a freshly prepared juice. For the ease of the kitchen staff we all eat breakfast and dinner at the same times each day. We will have lots of fresh fish on the menu, too! Tips to the staff for these pre-planned retreat meals are also included. We've realized over the years that most folks like having the option to skip lunch, may be off site during the day or simply order something small like a smoothie so, we are leaving that up to you this year.
Once we have everyone's Sansa Flight Arrival Information to Tambor, Pranamar will arrange our shuttles for us. We've included this into your stress-free experience. :-)
We will help you every step of the way. Once you've booked your spot on the retreat you'll receive a welcome packet with lots of helpful travel tips! We can help you with planning, booking flights, pre- and post-retreat suggestions, preparing for the week, packing, etc. Please note we are requiring all participants be vaccinated at least 30 days prior to departure date to Costa Rica.

The Blue Zone of the Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica is known as one of the healthiest places on the planet. You'll feel it the moment you arrive.
Nestled next to the pool, with the sounds of the ocean guiding your breath, our twice daily group practices are held in this sacred space.

Large deck has a hammock and chairs with your very own view!

You'll fly into SJO International Airport in San Jose Costa Rica. You'll then book a hopper flight to the peninsula (Tambor airstrip) through www.flysansa.com. We'll arrange your pick up there and shuttle you to the Retreat.
There is so much to do in the area. You can book directly with the lovely staff at Pranamar once you arrive. Feel free to visit www.pranamarvillas.com for more info. A quick sample list: snorkeling, fishing, ATVg, waterfall hikes, zipline, bird watching, eco preserve tours, surfing, paddleboarding, & much more! Boogie boards, surfboards, and paddleboards available for use at Pranamar - $20 per day. Remember, we are including several excursions in your booked price so, wait to book any additional upon arrival.
You can get an additional massage or facial at the delightful oceanfront spa. You'll book these also once you arrive.
We've realized that since the portions of food are plenty, many opt out of lunch or like the opportunity to order off the delicious menu. It's also nice when planning excursions - you have the opportunity to stop in town. Most of the middle part of the day is yours to choose your adventure.
Tips are welcome and encouraged for housekeeping, spa services, transportation, office help, additional bar and restaurant purchases, surf instructors, etc. You will find the Costa Rican culture warm, inviting, and friendly and after 10 years of travelling here to Pranamar, the staff and their friends are now like family. They are extremely hard working and are so appreciative of the extra earnings we provide.
You may use your CC at Pranamar for any services booked through them and the additional tips OR you can use US dollars. I usually bring an extra $500 in cash for tips and a bit more for in-town purchases.
Once you've booked, you'll receive Travel Tips, retreat guidelines & suggestions, special instructions, retreat schedule, packing list, requests for dietary restrictions and more! We are here to guide you every step of the way!
